A mammoth retrospective, Frank Stella: Experiment and Change at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, makes its grand entrance in November, featuring 300 works created over the 81-year-old artist’s prolific six-decade career. In Miami, Frost Art Museum FIU opens The Artist as Mystic, an unprecedented examination of the life works of Cuban master painter Rafael Soriano, who died at age 94 here in 2015. Works by painter/sculptor Eduardo Ramirez-Villamizar, on view at Durban Segnini Gallery in Miami, demonstrate why the late artist was considered one of the masters of Colombian sculpture. The first career survey of Miami-based video artist Dara Friedman launches at Pérez Art Museum Miami, where Dara Friedman: Perfect Stranger features 17 major films and video works that unravel cinematic conventions. The Cultural Center of Spain in Miami introduces us to the Spanish visual artist and filmmaker Beatriz Ruibal, whose What Might Have Been. And Never Was explores memory and nostalgia in photographs and audio-visual productions. Last chance: Korean-American artist Jiha Moon, who combines traditional Asian landscape-painting techniques with American Modern and Pop art influences, closes her first solo debut, Visitors Green, at Mindy Solomon Gallery at the end of November.
